Camille Nichols, a retired U.S. Army major general and defense acquisition veteran, has joined Amentum as executive vice president of project services.
She will oversee the company’s procurement and contracts, information technology, security, ethics and real estate organizations and will bring to the role her more than two decades of procurement experience at the Department of Defense, Amentum said Wednesday.
“Camille has developed extensive expertise in business operations and understands the complex environment in which our clients must balance current and future readiness with pressures on the budget,” said John Vollmer, CEO of Amentum and a 2020 Wash100 Award winner. “Her leadership will be critical as we continue our important work supporting our customers’ critical missions while also leveraging new enablers to solve new challenges and enhance operations and readiness in the decades to come.”
Nichols most recently served as VP of business operations for the government group at Fluor (NYSE: FLR).
Her 40-year career in the Army included time as a contracting officer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, systems coordinator within office of the assistant secretary of the Army for research, development and acquisition and deputy commanding general of the Army’s Installation Management Command.
